  • a little of both, depends on how busy I am.
    I always test it be eating it before I know for sure if it is done.

  • Test by eating them. How long they cook depends on MANY factors like the type of pot, how much water, how its salted, how high the heat is. Using a timer is silly when cooking pasta.
